, we have a little bit of new information. actually, just in in the last couple of minutes from nbc news on this specifically. and i want to tell you what nbc has told us. sources involved are telling nbc news that the pressure cooker bombs in boston were designed and placed to act quote like a homemade clay moor, a powerful directional antipersonnel device, so they don't spray in 360 degrees. they're directional. so these sources are telling nbc news, these and other sources, the triggering mechanism appears to have included a battery pack and a circuit board, elements of a sophisticated triggering mechanism. bo quote it appeared to be built from scratch, but with a sophisticated triggering mechanism. all bombs are crude devices and it is the way they are triggered that can be sophisticated. they functioned as designed. pressure cookers are exactly what you are thinking. they are metal cooking pots that clamp the top down tight with a tight seal allowing you to cook food faster under pressure with a normal lid like a normal pot. if it sounds like i am not a person who cooks, you're
questions. joining me today here in new york city, nbc news capitol hill correspondent luke russert, and misterrorism expert michael leiter, and bob herbert, a distinguished senior fellow at dimos. >>> let's go to kristin welker for more. >> reporter: alex, good afternoon. here's what we know at this hour. this letter was received yesterday at an off-site mail facility. i want to emphasize that. it did not get close to the white house. it's typical for letters sent to this facility to undergo a screening. during that process, it was discovered that a letter addressed to president obama did contain a suspicious substance action as you mentioned, similar to the letter that was sent to senator wicker. so right now secret service is working in concert with the fbi, with the capitol police, to determine exactly who sent this letter why and what the motive is. we are expecting press secretary jay carney to deliver his daily briefing. i want to make sure this is very clear. this was a scheduled briefing for 11:45, so we expect him to come out at any minute. he will undoubtedly get a number

lighter, nbc news terrorism expert. good morning to you. the key question everyone is waking up with is what is your gut? does this bear the hallmarks of some domestic terrorism or do you suspect it may be an act of international terrorism? >> i know it's not very satisfying but from my experience at the national counterterrorism center, you don't follow your gut. what you actually do is very methodically collect these pieces of evidence, it's the forensic evidence, it's the videotape, it's reporting from the cia and fbi and sources and putting that together. my gut is the person who did this has some connection to boston because they so effectively picked the iconic symbol of patriots day and the finish of the boston marathon. i also don't think we have enough information to point in domestic or international terrorism. you have to be careful speculating what it might be. >> on the one hand you have crude devices and on the other hand a coordinated attack. you can look at points on either side of this. >> although the devices weren't as large as we've seen overseas or what we s
